In 2009 the Lord led them to leave the team and to expand the ministry to include adults in an itinerant evangelistic and revival ministry of preaching and praying for the salvation of souls, the stirring of the saints, and the glory of the Lord. While Bro. Chavez serves as the president of Hoosier Hills Baptist Camp in Indiana, he also took the pastorate of the Green Road Baptist Church of Madison, Indiana, in May of 2017.

David surrendered to the ministry at age 17. He has now been traveling full-time in evangelism since June 2009. God has given him the privilege to perform illusions for adults, teenagers, and children since around 2000. The illusions have opened a door for a public school ministry where God has allowed him to see thousands of visitors come to church evangelistic events and hundreds of people saved! They have been in over 110 public schools in more than 18 states! David married Joy in April 2011, and they travel full-time with their miracle son, Carson!

Rhonda Damhorst

Mrs. Damhorst (or Mrs. D as she is affectionately called here at First Baptist) was saved at the age of 12 while attending the First Baptist Church of Milford. As a faithful teenager in the church the Lord began using her to teach a Sunday School class of 4 and 5 year olds. Mrs. D remained in the church as a children’s worker from the age of 16 to the time that she went to college at Midwestern Baptist in Pontiac, Michigan. In 1971, she received a bachelor’s degree in Religious Education from Midwestern, and then continued her post-graduate years at the University of Detroit in the field of Education. Mrs. D counts it a privilege to have served over 50 years with preschool children, and for more than two decades she has served in Master Clubs with the Little Lambs and Shepherds.
